- Wedding: June 2012
Let´s see..it´s saturday morning here in Portugal and today we´re having a very grey day which is great because we´ve had no rain for ages and the country fazes a serious draught (think it´s writtten this way..). Some family arrived last night for a visit (my future sister-in-law) and i must go and see them for lunch – i really love them but frankly..love to spend time by myself, with my girls playing around and the cats nesting against me..feeling the jasmin scent coming from the balcony.
I am very worried about the groom´s mum..she´s turning 88 this year and is doing poorly ..i hope, i just hope she makes it till the wedding because if the worst happens i don´t know how things will be..she´s a dear, dear lady with fascinating stories and memories to tell, a loving grandmother and her marriage is an example for me.
All is running smoothly so far. I found my dress on january 3rd, it arrived on February 3rd and first fit was a couple of weeks ago . I love it..it´s not modern, sexy or sophisticated..it´s me..romantic, nature loving, a dream..in flowing chiffon. A magnificent, sparkling veil that flows till the dress tail…my mother hasn´t seen me in my dress..nor did she show interest in seeing it ..long story..guess everyone will be surprised at the wedding..they will see a Sonia they´re not quite used to see..why is it they constantely tell me they don´t know this Sonia,that they never expected me to marry or to have a ceriminy and party like this? It makes me sad because in truth ..they never knew me at all..maybe my fault..i have always been a romatic, always. I love candles,i love love, i grew up with the classics (Jane Austen, the Bronte sisters, Jules Verne, Charles Dickens..) so immagination and the belief in all things beautiful have been a part of me since a child..how come they dont see it? My own mother asked me “er..but are you really wearing a wedding dress?”, “why? what did u wear when you married?”..grrrrrrrrrr
Anyway, i have the dress (695€), the shoes (130€), the lingerie (40€ – Intimissi), the jewelery, 40€ (a simple string of silver with a heart shaped crystal), the dress for the maid of honor (my 12 years old daughter) is chosen – Mango (60€), the ring bearer (our 4 years old) dress has arrived (Vertbaudet – 27€), also her shoes and headband are bought.
Our wedding rings are in yellow gold (Eternis)
The Place we´re getting married is located in the most romantic place in the country (Sintra). The Cerimony will be in the garden, by the sound of Enya . We will be 53 people – just the close family. Invitations have arrived, from Fairymomemts and hopefully the grrom has sent most by post by now.
All´s going well
